delve into the scientific literature and what history has to teach us? what would be the equivalent of some kind of massive destruction caused by the force that we don't understand? and i came upon the idea of mass extinction which are indeed the worst kind of disaster that could ever happen to the planet. and the more i research them, the more i read scientific papers and talk to scientists on a realized that actually one of the characteristics of the mass extinction is that there are survivors. and that is when i began to change haloid understood what this book was going to be about. so let me start by telling you a little bit about the destruction a mass extinction is actually a scientific term of art, which refers to any event where more than 75% of all species on the planet by out, and usually these take about a million years. and so when you look at them they are taking place in geological times. they are not a quick thing that we can see in a human lifetime. and one of the things that links pretty much all of the mass extinctions -- and there have been five of them so far in

bar tenders guild. the liquor laws don't allow us to use alcohol in training. the bar tenders schools in california are a joke. it's a cheap industry where hopeful bar tenders are hoping to take a $300-500 course to use colored liquid. if we are expected to do this for educational purposes, i imagine that we have to do the same thing, to go through the legislators to propose that to the public and propose it to the abc. i believe this nightlife summit was create because of problems in the public, there was problems with noise, problems with over drinking, a lot of our laws are based on that. i'm here to propose that we have more responsible training for our bar tenders and servers. the cocktail boom around the country has turned bartenders into a true professional. now that professional bartender's job is in question. >> i'm sure it's around the whole notion of where you can drink alcohol and the idea of one of those courses or presentations or event would whether or not it would constitute a public, somebody opened to the public or whether it was essentially amounting to commercial

that process, i did have to go through that process of a conditional use hearing when i opened on valencia street and that was an important step for me, i was able to hear the concerns of the neighborhood and thanks in part to that, i've had a great relationship with my neighbors for nearly 9 years. if i were to go through the hearing process and learn that a neighborhood was not supportive, i would no longer be interested in opening there. when one of my fellow merchants had the opportunity to ask jack spade's marketing manager if he would still be interested in opening on 16th street, even if 100% of the residents and merchants were opposed, he was unable to say no, and to me, this goes directly to the heart of why we have the formula retail regulations, measures which to me, kate spade that attempted to evade, they are not invested in the community, they are exclusively focused on what is good for the company and for their shareholders, i urge you to grant the jurisdiction request so that the community can have a say and we don't allow jack or kate spade to sneak into the neighborhood,

that are used widely today and administered privately, there are some difference, one of those which i think you're getting to is that the medical reimbursement accounts administered by the city have no prescribers other than them being available broadly for medical services. >> you said earlier, i want to get the number right, that about 35% of employers that use these hra's have not allowed in this past year that the money be used for health insurance? >> that is correct. >> if that money is now going to be used in healthy san francisco let's say, will healthy san francisco place restrictions on the use of that money? i would imagine that we are not going to prohibit people from using that to buy health insurance? >> that sounds unlikely. i would be reluctant to speculate but i can say there's no such restrictions on the administration of those accounts currently or over the five or six years they've been maintaining those accounts forward. er >> i think that's a great thing, you have more people using that money for health insurance. in terms of the medical reimbursement accounts, is there an
that will get us through a reasonable amount of time. matt walked through some of the economics of phase 1. phase ii, we have not yet submitted a formal proposal that has not been requested at this time, but obviously it's a major project through the entire pier. development costs would be in excess of $100 million. we would be requesting the full 66-year lease that is within the trust a because that would be required to amortize a very substantial investment, particularly with a full seismic upgrade and pier structure work that would be required. and we would finance this through a combination of private equity, debt, and federal and state historic tax credits. tmg has a lot of experience and we believe we can secure those credits and help make this project work. the project would generate a good deal of revenue over its life as well as a good deal of expenses up front,v and we expect that we would be able to pay a very substantial amount of rent to the port and would be willing to structure various forms of up side participation as is typical for these major projects, however, there woul
